The fund is part of the health and wellbeing programme. Each round focuses on a specific theme. The theme for this round is social prescribing.
We are inviting applications to set up a new social prescribing scheme or to support the expansion of an existing scheme.
Through this programme, the Department of Health, NHS England and Public Health England are working with voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to promote equality, address health inequalities and support the well-being of people, families and communities.
As we know, the Third Sector is diverse and includes large multi-million pound national charitable organisations as well as small self-funded groups and organisations. It is because of this diversity that the Chamber has had some anomalies in applying their fee structure, which is based on number of paid employees.
Community Action Wirral has been working in partnership with Wirral Chamber to agree a fee structure that takes the needs of the sector into account. After exploring several models, we have decided that a generous discount would be the best outcome. This is less complicated than applying a ‘pick and mix’ of services and benefits that may or may not be useful. This way, the sector can benefit from the whole package that membership offers, even if not all services are utilised.
Third Sector members will therefore receive a 50% discount off their annual Chamber membership effective 1st March 2017.
